Renovation Planning and Execution
You’ve probably heard it said that the product is only as good as the process. Our decades of experience have taught us that plans are a vital communication tool, so we put extra time and effort into creating a solid, detailed plan for your home renovation. It’s our attention to detail that has earned us a reputation for honesty and integrity and that keeps every Steve Gray Renovations remodeling project smoothly, start to finish.
Step 1. Interview
Your comfort and confidence in the renovation process is essential, so we recommend interviewing companies before choosing one. Steve loves the opportunity to answer questions and learn about what you envision for your home remodel. If you determine that Steve Gray Renovations is a good match, we’ll begin to develop a project scope and initial budget. (Need ideas? Get inspired!)
Step 2. Design
Once you’re comfortable with the scope and initial budget, we’ll move into the design phase of the project. Depending on the complexity of the renovation, a design fee may be required at this point. It can be helpful to have a folder loaded with your ideas, pictures, magazine clippings, and website images. If you need help gathering ideas or finding sources for interior design, just ask! We work with some of the best designers in central Indiana.
We combine your ideas with our expertise to produce highly detailed design and construction plans for your project. There is no timeline for this phase; we’ll meet with you as many times as it takes to ensure that the plan matches your vision.
Step 3. Select
This is what makes Steve Gray Renovations different: Before your renovation starts, we’ll consult with our quality craftsmen, suppliers, and vendors to secure pricing for all materials and selections you’ve made. Steve also meets with the craftsmen at your home to review the plans and discuss any potential challenges. This allows us to move into the next phase with confidence – and transparency.
Step 4. Plan
No one likes surprises. Once construction plans are complete and selections are finalized, my team reviews everything and presents a detailed set of project specifications, which include the budget, preliminary timeline, and construction information. This step-by-step guide for your home renovation keeps construction delays to a minimum.
Step 5. Renovate!
After you review and sign our construction contract, your renovation will begin at the agreed-upon start date. With detailed construction drawings, project specifications, and timeline, we are ready to renovate! (Are you ready? We’d love to learn more about your dream renovation. Contact Us!)
I was given a constantly updated list of who was going to be in the house and what they were going to be doing. My frustration level may have been high had the crew not have been as detailed and organized. – Michelle
